Oakworth Primary School
Together We Learn, Together We Grow
On behalf of the children and staff, I would like to welcome you to Oakworth Primary School. We hope that you will find our website clear, informative and easy to navigate. It has been designed to give you a flavour of the vibrant life of the school, the work of our wonderful pupils and the quality education that we strive to deliver.
Oakworth Primary is a two-form foundation school, set in the heart of the picturesque Worth Valley. We also have our own, fifty-two place Nursery, which ensures that children receive an excellent start to their education. We are very proud that visitors to our school comment positively on the high-quality teaching and learning, caring ethos and outstanding behaviour that they observe.
It is the school’s priority to provide a stimulating environment where children grow and develop in safe and supportive surroundings and become equipped with skills for life-long learning. Children at Oakworth are recognised as unique individuals, with specific talents and needs. We promote high standards in all areas and work tirelessly to provide a varied and creative curriculum and memorable school experiences that foster a love of learning and make our classrooms hives of activity and enterprise.
As a village school, we also aim to work in close partnership with parents and the local community. We welcome many visitors into school to support and enhance the children’s learning and you will regularly see us out and about in the locality, making full use of the stimulating environment and encouraging pupils to develop their citizenship. Thank you for browsing our website. If you would like to know more about the school, you are very welcome to contact the School Office or to come and visit us. The children of Oakworth very much enjoy talking about and sharing their achievements and learning and we will all look forward to meeting you.
